SVPcast converts a video into high frame rate and then streams it via HLS (HTTP Live Streaming) protocol. It can also control some TV boxes in order to pass them a HLS stream URL and start playback automatically, including:

  • Google Chromecast (note that Chromecast 1st and 2nd Gen. can only play 720p/60 fps. See Supported Media for Google Cast)
  • Google Cast-enabled TVs and TV boxes
  • Apple TV via AirPlay protocol

Also you can manually open a HLS stream URL in your favorite Android or iOS video player (a good example is MX Player) and enjoy 60 fps video right on your mobile.



To add SVPcast, select it during the installation of SVP, or install it using the Maintain SVP 4 application (see the Additional Components section). In SVP 4 Mac, it is necessary to mark the Main menu option Application settings → Additional options → Extensions → svpcast.

After that, the Streaming sub-menu is displayed in the SVP Main menu.

You should pre-install mpv with Vapoursynth support on computers running macOS or Linux.
